God is almost omnipotent. He has many limits.
Omnipotent is defined in part as having power or authority without limits IOW, almighty.
Seems to me that God has a few limits.
He cannot reproduce true.
He cannot enjoy sex.
He cannot reproduce without bestiality or cross species breeding.
He can only reproduce half breed chimeras like Jesus.
He could not create a heaven without Satan.
He could not create Eden without evil in it.
He cannot control wayward demons or devils.
He cannot sin, although scripture says he does.
He cannot live without needs like adoration, honour, obedience, love.
He cannot accept a soul into heaven without us accepting Jesus and human sacrifice.
He could not forgive sin without having Jesus sacrificed.
Feel free to add to this list.
How then can Christians say that God omnipotent, all-powerful and without limits when he clearly has many?
How do you know he didn't do all that naughtiness on purpose? Maybe he just wanted a little bit of drama. It probably gets boring being Almighty.
It is all in his nefarious plan to get all the sheep. I cheated...I read the end of the story.

If the Christian god is omnipotent then why would it need to order the murder of it's son so that it can forgive? No Christian can answer this because it is utter nonsense. But I challenge any christian to give it a try.

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is...
